Q: I’m a guy in my mid-20s and just started my first corporate job. Since image is important, can you recommend a few high-quality, beginner products that can keep my skin looking healthy and clear?

A: A smart skincare regimen will take you places when it comes to looking your best at work. The easiest way to begin is to look for a complete starter kit – which will include the basic essentials for daily grooming. Anthony Logistics Essentials Starter Kit is a great choice, featuring a facial cleanser, shaving cream, hair and body wash, facial moisturizer and lip balm.

Q: Even though I realize that bar soap is not the best way to cleanse my dry skin, I just can’t get used to liquid cleansers. Are there any soap-free cleansers that come in the form of a bar?

A: Definitely. There are lots of soap-free alternatives that come in the form of a bar. Many are made of milk, mud or other nourishing ingredients that effectively cleanse without stripping away your skin’s essential oils. Try one of the following cleansing bars: ZIRH Body Bar - Cleansing Alpha Hydroxy Body Bar, Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar or Thalgo Micronized Marine Algae Cleansing Bar.

Q: I have highly sensitive skin. I occasionally experience skin reactions, but I’m pretty certain my daily products aren’t to blame. What else could be triggering these reactions?

A: Since the reaction is occurring on your trunk and doesn’t coincide with the use of your skincare products, it’s possible that a particular shirt or sweater is to blame. Certain fabrics – including wool and certain synthetic blends – can cause uncomfortable skin reactions for sensitive skin.

Q: Which hair removal method is the best?

A: Which hair removal method is best really depends on you, your skin type and your hair. Some hair removal processes work wonders for some people and don’t work at all for others. The best way to figure out which process will work best for you is to experiment with the ones you’re willing to try until you find your perfect match.

Q: My lips get horribly chapped during the hot weather. What can I do to treat chapped lips?

A: First, prevent chapped lips by using a balm that contains SPF and nourishing ingredients such as squalane, petrolatum, castor seed oil, shea butter and sunflower seed oil. A great choice for preventing and treating chapped lips is Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm, which contains a blend of squalane, caster oil and petrolatum along with thermal spring water to soothe. Another great option is Elizabeth Arden Nourishing Lip Balm SPF 20, which protects against UVA/UVB and also contains petrolatum caster seed oil and shea butter.
